Hi,
Last year I used my PC w/ orange pad w/ Meguiars DACP #83 to remove swirls. It didn't worked very well... After like 5 runs on the hood there were still a lot of swirls.
I think the #83 is too "soft". This year I want to try the same thing but with Menzerna Intensive Polish which I think is more abrasive.
Good idea or not?
Also theses are the steps I want to do:
1. Clay
2. Swirl removing w/ PC+orange pad w/ Menzerna Intensive Polish
3. Klasse AIO w/ PC+white pad
4. 3 layers of Klasse SG by hand
5. Some pure Carnauba wax (not sure about this one)
Should I polish with a finishing polish before applying the AIO or does the AIO act as a fine polish? Any other recommendations? It's on a red 2003 jetta btw.
If I could get Jesstzn attention on this thread...

Re: Swirls removing question (metalmash)

I removed a lot pf pretty good swirls from my black B5.5 with #83 but I used a yellow pad at 4.5 to 5 for more cut then I followed it with #80 on a white pad to clean it up.
AIO has no polishing ability .. its a cleaner only.

I have since switched to the Optimum line because it gives long working times and is less $$.
Your going to find IP dries fast and dusts a lot .. I have it and never use it any more.
Also Optimum has a product called PoliSeal which does exactly the same as AIO and is a lot less $$$$ . I have used it as a cleanup base for SG, Wolfgang and mostly Megs #21.
